I guess I've never really thought about it this way before. It's just a natural thing for me, it's how I'm wired. It's one of the qualities about myself that I'm most grateful for. That I was entrusted with this Gift. There are many kinds of strength.
I had to learn to not let people take so much of me that they left me empty. But I cared so much that I couldn't see it. I had to learn the hard way when I finally realized a close friend was using me for her own gain and giving nothing back. Give, care, but dont let others take you for granted or use you. Sometimes we have to put ourselves first for our own physical and mental health.
